Here’s a fantastic way to use up the last of your ground spices and also make a great gift, presented in a well-sealed glass jar.


Simply take a really good-quality salt such as a fleur de sel, pink salt or, Rebecca's favourite, Murray River Gourmet salt, and your choice of ground spice. Use about 1 teaspoon of spice to about 125g of salt. Mix them together thoroughly in a small bowl, then tip into a dry airtight container.

Store for as long as you would any salt and use to add a pleasing spice flavour to dishes.
